Looking Back From the Western News archives — January 13, 1983

Mustang Weekend, an event held from January 21 to 22, was to host a number of Canadian universities in a “high-calibre” athletic competition.


The event would also allow the London community to observe and attend a free cross-country ski clinic.


A liaison committee was recommended to the Council of Ontario Universities in order to coordinate distance education in the province.  This would enable students who faced barriers in time and personal circumstances of physical distance to obtain university credit courses.


An unsuccessful attempt to steal a $1 change machine in Elborn College was made. The culprits failed to remove the machine from the wall or to break into the machine itself.


The Richard Ivey Foundation gave the Faculty of Law a three-year, $60,000 grant in order to fund seminars in Legal Philosophy and Legal History for law professors. The seminars were to familiarize law faculties with the application of philosophical concepts and with the study of legal history.


Final rehearsals were in progress for the Gilbert and Sullivan Society production of The Gondoliers. The show was to run in January at Talbot Theatre.
